Most landscape contractors use sub-contractors in their business. They are necessary for most operations because of limited expertise and equipment.

In most cases, the relationship between contractor and subs are great but sometimes not.  This week the Harvesters are going to offer some excellent warnings to be sure you are cautious in selecting the subs you use.

The Harvesters know of one case where a subcontractor caused the contractor to lose a two million dollar job.  In another case, the pesticide subcontractor didn’t have proper insurance and the owner sued the contractor for trees that were damaged and came pretty close to sinking that contractors ship.

So, watch their clip and beware of the subs you use because you don’t want them to sink your ship!  You can’t Harvest Your Potential with bad subs.

Have a great weekend.

When asking one Harvest “one to one” client how

he likes his new Verizon system, he said:

“I don’t know how we lived without it! Now we know exactly where our crews are or have been. We stopped one really harsh driver that was abusing our truck, stopped the unscheduled mid-day and end of day stops and it’s helping us in our job costing. It has substantially increased our bottom line this year! And my wife loves it cause it’s so user-friendly.”
